Biography

Hello I am Pete, I was Born in the Wiltshire town of Wootton Bassett in 1950.

I started Short Wave Listening in 1963.

In 1966, I trained as a Royal Air Force Telegraphist.
(I was in the 306th Apprentice Entry at RAF Cosford 1966-67).

I was Licensed as Amateur Radio Station MP4BIM - Bahrain Island in 1970 and 1971, whilst serving at RAF Muharraq.

I was an active Founder Member of the newly formed ARABahrain in 1971.
Unfortunately, I left Bahrain just before the new A9 callsigns were issued.

I also operated the club station - MP4BBA and the JOTA station - MP4BS.

I have the honour to be a Life Vice President of the International Short Wave League
and an honorary member of COBRAS - The City of Belfast Radio Amateur Society - GI2BX.

I am a very active SWL on all the Ham Bands, from 160m through to 6m.

I Monitor CW, RTTY, PSK, JT65 and other data modes, including the occasional SSTV.
I only use SSB for listening to specific club nets etc.

Most of my active monitoring is in PSK, RTTY, JT9, JT65 and FT8 at the present time.

My CW monitoring is less now, due to "CW deafness". (I no longer have a full hearing range).

I have no Interest in TX'ing.

When I send out Reception Reports, they are sent via eQSL.cc (AG Life Member).


If I have visited your QRZCQ page, I have probably heard you QRV on the bands that day.
